Data sources: which sources are most reliable and practical for better visibility e.g. real-time satellite data or supplier updates? Examples of data-driven strategies you can adopt to flatten cost volatility, driven by end-to-end, SKU-level visibility of your supply chain  WHO FOR?

The pandemic has prompted a shift to non-store channels, including delivery and click & collect, accelerating a trend that was already well established. For many, the response has been tactical with a 'whatever it takes' approach to serving customers however they wish. In tandem with the drive to reduce waste, there are important questions about whether the status quo is sustainable or whether a fundamental re-think and re-design of supply chain operations, enabled by digital technologies, is now an urgent priority. If so, how?
